Started reading The Hobbit tonight and was struck for the first time to wonder why the doorknob would be located in the middle of the door.

Outside of an aesthetic, mechanically how would this work? What benefit would it provide?

I'm sure there has been discussion on this, but I don't recall ever reading any.

My only initial thought was that the bolt would be of equal length on both sides of the knob, thus securing the door on the hinged and non-hinged side, but how much benefit is that if it only extends one twist of the knob in?

Historically in eastern PA, it was common-place for alumni to come in the room, particularly over Thanksgiving and Christmas. Most college coaches I know encourage their kids to stop in their HS rooms over break, it gives them a workout and is good for HS kids to hear about wrestling in college and go with their former teammates.

Yet apparently in 2009 the PIAA, sanctioning body, implemented a rule banning such interaction and as a result last years AA State Coach of the Year was suspended for two weeks for letting alumni in the room over Thanksgiving.

I think this is going to be bad for the state of PA, there is a lot of benefit of having alumni come in the room for a wide range of reasons. Now it is all being shut down based on this punishment.

What do your states do? Do alumni come in the room, work-out, have 'specialists' drop in depending on kids that need different work-out partners than what teammates can offer?

Shock 'n' Awe in Grace Hall - #10 Lehigh defeats #4 Michigan 27-8, wins 8 of 10 bouts.

Michigan's Micic was out at 133, which is a bummer, because it would have been awesome to see him against Parker, a #2 vs. #3 match-up.

Lehigh picked up upset wins by (unranked) Brown over #8 Pantaleo, #9 Kutler over #4 Amine, and #6 Preisch over #5 Abounder, which sealed the team victory.

Michigan's wins came with #3 Massa a tech fall over #18 Walter and #2 Coon with a decision over #13 Wood.

Full house, lots of noise and excitement, great atmosphere for a wrestling dual meet.

New site for 'ugly' wrestling holiday sweatshirts.

If you are on Twitter they have a contest to share and one person will get a free one (I think that is how it works).

Last year I missed Who's Number 1 due to travel for work, but got to watch it today.

What an incredible level of wrestling. Hard to believe many of these kids are in HS.

Great to see our local guy Sammy Sasso get the fall to close the event.
